It’s hard to believe that Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Walter Payton has been gone 10 years, but Sunday will mark the 10th anniversary of his passing.
The Bears are honoring his memory at halftime of their game with Cleveland this weekend.
Payton was my all-time favorite player growing up. The guy wasn’t the fastest, but he could do everything and he never gave up on any yard he thought he could gain. The guy lowered his head for every inch.
That’s why he was the league’s all-time leading rusher for 15 years before Emmitt Smith came along. Just a special player that you felt privileged to watch.
Here’s a shot of me at the Hall of Fame with ‘Sweetness’ (that was his nickname for those that don’t know). Well sort of.
